Natural Scratch™ was born of my personal need for an effective cat scratching post. Click for more of its History.  My family and I have had cats and dogs since I was born, and I remember every one affectionately.

Primary goal of Natural Scratch™ is preserving cat claws.  They are marvels and cats need them to spear olives out of their martinis, among other uses.  This is a cat-comes-first enterprise.  After feline satisfaction, buyer happiness is paramount.  All Natural Scratch™ cat scratching posts are guaranteed.

Natural Scratch™ cat scratching posts are made from cedar and cork by skilled woodworkers at a shop in Northern Wisconsin; the owner and his family have cats, too, and take pride in their work.  (The small company also makes other wood products.) My office is in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Happy Customers

"It is perfection! They love it and I love it!”

L.O., Santa Fe, NM

"This is replacing an old (about 7 years) cork scratcher from you which my cats love and have worn down to a stump. When I pulled the new one out my cat was watching me and I literally saw his eyes get big! He is excited!"

M.B., Dripping Springs, TX

"This is the BEST scratching post on the market; I'm purchasing the second one as a gift for a friend...she just adopted a cat from our local ASPCA. The first Natural Scratch is still going strong...the cats haven't touched the furniture since it arrived. On a side note...you may wish to charge MORE for the Natural Scratch (they last forever)."
